3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 02/23/2012. This brew pours a clear pale orange color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and grainy malt. Medium body with flavors of earthy hops, malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

It is a decent pale ale that I would put on a level with SNPA. It has a mild hoppiness but it is an interesting hoppiness.

1 pint bottle. Yellow orange color with visible sediment suspended in the body, nice thin off-white head, some lace. Visible particles. Nice good hop profile. Lighter and crisp carbonation, very drinkable. Some light bitter taste. Good pale ale. Between this and the Luna coffee stout, I’ve got a pretty good impression of Hinterland so far. The 1 pint bottle size is something that I can appreciate.

Sampled from the tap at the Milwaukee brewpub. Pours a near clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of earthy citrus with a bit of light grain and hay. Flavor starts with musty citrus and light fruit with earthy grains and hay in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured rather dark for a pale ale.. deeper orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma was all about the caramel and floral hoppage.. very sweet backing picked up some bready notes as well. Flavor was also quite sweet with lightly toasted caramel, grains, and tacky candied sweetness supporting a mild floral and herbal bitterness. Medium-bodied on the palate and tacky at several points. Overall quite drinkable and rather tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a small froth of white head. Has a semi-sweet pale malty nose with some mild fresh piny hoppy notes. Starts with pretty rich fullness for the style and a mild light caramely sweetness with some grassy bittering hop balance before a fairly crisp bittersweet finish. Seems a little malt heavy for the style and could be a little cleaner in the finish, but still a pretty decent pale ale.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear amber color with a small bubbly white head. The aroma has toasted bread, grainy, some light herbal and floral hops. This seems to be a touch on the dusty side. The flavor is grainy, toasted bread, mildly herbal with some general bitterness to the finish. Not very exciting.

Tallahassee, Fl - Whole Foods Market - pint bottle. Dark, murky orange pour with a sticky off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma has some light spicy notes, a touch of citrus. Flavor has a nice underlying subtle bitterness with some sweet cake mix notes, a touch of vanilla and some coriander spiciness. Mouthfeel is rich and full. Nice change of pace.
